‘The Road to Whiteleaf Cross’

 
Greetings From the Lord of Misrule!

 

Friday 29th May marked the passing of the traditional English festival of Oak Apple Day, and so, as we move out of the Lunar Hawthorn Tree Calendar Month and into that of the Oak we find the Gay Gordon Brown Trousers looking more and more like the Lord of Misrule who originally presided over so many of the May Month traditional revels that were once part of the indigenous pagan ritual calendar.
 
As we ourselves shall very soon see, as this sometimes and occasional blog moves on with a new theme, this time taking us on a magical mystery tour along ‘The Road to Whiteleaf Cross’, the fact that Chequers, the Gay Gordon’s all expenses paid Prime Ministerial weekend retreat, is itself located in the midst of an ancient ritual landscape directly tapped in to the world famous Great Dragon Line may well have something to do with it. A fact which would come as little surprise to radical English Civil War Parliamentarians such as John Hampden. Himself a one time resident of nearby Hampden House.
 
In part one of our journey, which begins next month, we set out from a similarly ancient ritual landscape, itself just a few miles down the road from Tony Blair’s one time party political stomping ground. The first stage of a countrywide journey across the land in search of the hidden greenwood bowers in which the Oak King still
